James Blunt - How It Feels to Be Alive

English
A A

How It Feels to Be Alive

When my heart doesn’t beat any more
And my body’s cold
You will walk, dressed in black, to my door
And the bells will toll
 
You used my love like an open vein
And just when I thought it would heal
Back you came
 
Seeing you again for the first time
Trying to look ahead and not behind
Raging as you do against the tide
Knowing that you're his instead of mine
Getting used to being hurt again
Every day is closer to the end
Holding back the tears I need to cry
Waiting to breathe for the last time
Yeah, that’s how it feels to be alive
That’s how it feels to be alive
 
At my grave they did say one last verse
About the new love that you've found
And I lay in the rain by the church
And they lowered me into the ground
 
You stole my heart as your souvenir
Thought that you would never come back
But now you’re here
 
Seeing you again for the first time
Trying to look ahead and not behind
Raging as you do against the tide
Knowing that you're his instead of mine
Getting used to being hurt again
Every day is closer to the end
Holding back the tears I need to cry
Waiting to breathe for the last time
Yeah, that’s how it feels to be alive
Yeah, that’s how it feels to be alive
Yeah, that’s how it feels to be alive
 
(I'm outside waiting in the cold again)
(I'm outside wishing to be whole again)
Yeah, that’s how it feels to be alive
(I'm outside standing on my own again)
That's how it feels to be alive
 
Thanks!
